Greens working hard all year round

Take a look at what three local Green activists have been doing in just one area of Southwark. Catherine Dawkins, Claire Sheppard and Richard Taylor are standing for election to Southwark Council as Green Party candidates in Nunhead and Queen's Road.

Catherine, Claire and Richard surveyed voters in the area to understand local issues and took action. The top issues included: fly-tipping, littering, safer streets, and support for local businesses.

In response to this, they have:

  • participated in regular litter picks
  • installed dog poo bag dispensers
  • reported fly-tipping to Southwark Council and got the mess cleared up
  • organised a regular speed watch on Queens Road Peckham and Consort Road
  • helped local traders find out about support from the council

Greens are standing in the local elections right across Southwark. Vote for hardworking local Greens on Thursday 5 May.

North Walworth Green Peter Baffoe at hustings

Southwark News reported on the local election hustings organised for Black, Latin American and minority ethnic communities in Southwark at Peckham Levels. Voters discussed racial inequalities, the expulsion of traders from the Elephant & Castle shopping centre, regeneration and gentrification. 

Peter Baffoe, Green candidate for North Walworth, is Southwark born and bred. He works as a community development officer for a small charity based in Bermondsey.

 

Southwark Soapbox

Clare Wood from Southwark Greens is taking part in a Southwark News experiment to debate local issues ahead of the elections for Southwark Council on 5 May. The filmed debates are then shown to local people in a Gogglebox-style programme to hear their reactions.

The Greens and Liberal Democrats asked why the Labour-led Southwark Council hasn't held developers to their commitment to build 35% social housing. Clare mentioned that there are some 16,000 people on the housing waiting list in Southwark and said, 'Labour does have a very bad track record on making sure that new developments have space for social housing and local residents... and how affordable is it really for the local people?'

Clare pointed out that council consultation is too often about the Southwark Council telling local people what is happening, rather than responding to residents' concerns and needs.
